    Light-hearted and fun. Bonus: Get to learn about Kyoto
    Each week I look forward to these episodes. The characters make a great team, the atmosphere of the show is like a vacation, and you get to see some cool parts of Kyoto that you probably wouldn't see otherwise. Each episode follows a traveler or group of travelers that have come to Kyoto for their own reasons / problems. These get resolved in some fashion by the end of the show, and is easy and ...

    Fun, with a likeable "big girl" heroine.
    I admit it. I first watched this series because it is a Japanese series starring a "fat girl".
    Rarer than hen's teeth if you follow Japanese series. But the lady is likable, attractive, poised unlike (cough cough) Melissa McCartney, and has appeared on magazine covers such as La Farfa Magazine, in Japan (in real life!) She is smart, always has a plan for keeping the oh-so-picky customers at ...

    Light hearted and very well written.
    I have personally been to Kyoto, and toured extensively through the temples, parks and so forth. Food stands, and inns.

What I love about this is that in each scenario it just shows how weaved and impregnated such traditions are in Japanese culture and life. Amazing show with ...

    Refreshingly different.
    I enjoyed the first season of The Guide as it was somewhat different from the norm.
    I look forward to additional episodes/seasons and hope that Kyoko stays as resourceful and bright as in season one. If played right, this series has the legs to become a favorite. Wonderful!

  • A funny look around Kyoto!
    Itsutsu Boshi Tourist ranks as one of my favorites. It's lighthearted and funny as well as serves as a guide around a historic city. It also introduced me to the work of Naomi Watanabi. If you don't know who she is, look her up! She is one funny and talented lady. My only complaint about the show... Not enough episodes! Please give it a watch, you won't be disappointed!

  • This is The Best of Kyoto
    I was first attracted to this series because of its setting in Kyoto (I have been there a few times), and while I enjoyed seeing sites I have been to or didn't know about it was the characters and stories that kept me coming back. I liked how you were shown little pieces of information throughout that eventually fit together nicely like a puzzle (as demonstrated in the show by the puzzle motif) ...
